Mary — or “our Mary” as her patients call her — helps patients navigate one of the most difficult journeys of their lives: breast cancer. From biopsy, to diagnosis, surgery, remission, and everything in between, Mary is a constant, caring presence for her patients as she helps them overcome barriers and coordinates care with the entire healthcare team. In addition to her one-on-one work with her patients, Mary runs a support group for breast cancer patients and survivors.
Thank you, Mary, for standing by your patients every step of the way!
